<strike>J&#39;ai un doute sur les guerres mondiales, je sais pas pourquoi :P</strike>

Edit: aah non j&#39;avais pas compris, méa culpa

18/06/2006, 14h46
Génial !

19/06/2006, 09h18
Arf la liste qui tue :D

J&#39;imagine bien les archéologues dans 4000 ans en train de discuter pendant les fouilles sur les ruines du parlement européen (ou du congrès américain):
" - hey tu as lu la dernière ?
- Non, quoi ?
- Duke Nukem Forever est annoncé pour le prochain trimestre."

Et là je me rend compte que ça fait encore bien plus longtemps que je ne le pensais qu&#39;ils en parlent de ce jeu... =|

19/06/2006, 11h35
quand j&#39;etais jeune et insouciant et que je lisais pcjeux (honte sur moi) et qu&#39;il disait DNF pour le prochain trimestre (en 2001)!

19/06/2006, 16h42
Bon bien sûr tout ça c&#39;est pour rire, mais quand même! Même Sachant qu&#39;ils ont changé de moteur je ne sais combiende fois, 10 ans de boulot sur ce jeu!
Mon dernier frère avait 8 ans quand il a entendu parler pour la première fois de DNF lol, là il a 17 ans presque toute une vie, je trouve ça terrible :)
Vous imaginez si ils nous pondent 30 heures de solo? Ca nous fait quoi 1 heure et demie de jeu créée par an ? :D C&#39;est de l&#39;éxagération mais on s&#39;en approche non ?
10 ans de salaire pour toute l&#39;équipe! Il leur faudra vendre combien de boîtes pour rentabiliser?

Et sinon concrètement, les gars ils vont au boulot, ça fait dix ans qu&#39;ils bossent sur le même projet!

J&#39;arrète mes élucubrations ici, j&#39;ai pas fini d&#39;halluciner sinon!

19/06/2006, 17h03
quand j&#39;etais jeune et insouciant et que je lisais pcjeux (honte sur moi) et qu&#39;il disait DNF pour le prochain trimestre (en 2001)!

Gen4 à cette époque disait a peu près la même chose...

20/06/2006, 19h14
Le pire c&#39;est que Prey, lui il sort enfin. Alors que dire ? je crois que c&#39;est lus vraiment la peine de l&#39;attendre....

21/06/2006, 16h04
Même Chinese Democracy, pourtant entamé quelques mois après, va finir par sortir avant Duke4ever :D

D&#39;ailleurs le concert du 20 juin etait vraiment bien, à part les solos de guitare, ça durait assez longtemps et y en a eu pas mal. Bien lourd à la fin.

Sinon j&#39;espere que Stalker ne va pas prendre le cheme chemin que DNF

das le genre amusant, prey devait être un quake2-killer, avant d&#39;avoir un silence radio pendant environ 7 ans, on a eu un paquet de screens. duke, lui était annoncé debut 97 comme très gourmant car il nécessiterait un pentium120 pour se lancer ! on est passé du moteur de quake2 à celui d&#39;unreal et c&#39;était déclaré comme "à peine plus compliqué qu&#39;un clic de souris". 3drealms a inventé le clic de souris perpétuel. à part cela, lors d&#39;E3 des journalistes disaient avoir essayé des niveaux dont un bal-trap avec une dca... je ne sais pas si techniquement il sera costaud, mais il aura intérêt à être fun le bougre.

oué et en plus j ai pris 9 ans... putain ca c est de l info les mecs ! :D

02/07/2006, 01h41
il paraitrait (à prendre au conditionnel donc) que les dessins retrouvés dans les grottes de Lascaux étaient des esquisses préparatoire de la part des graphistes de duke nukem fornever!!!Ah oui leonard de vinci aurait participé au design des armes....
ceci expliquant cela je pense que la actuellement les codeurs apprennent le c++ un peu de patience...

02/07/2006, 02h04
je citerais grosso modo je sais plus qui dans joy(ackboo jcrois)
"pour expliquer à mon petit fils c&#39;est quoi la patience je lui parlerais de duke nukem forever et il me repondras oui je sais on l&#39;attend nous aussi..."
